Albanian Adventure

Map Image

From the sparkling Adriatic coast, over the Ionian Sea and across the central highlands of mainland Greece, join an adventure from arguably the most beautiful city in Croatia to the ancient metropolis of Athens. Along the way, stop to bask on pristine Montenegrin beaches, explore the historic towns and cities of undiscovered Albania and travel back in time in Corfu's evocative Old Town - this is truly a journey to remember.

Itinerary

Days 1-2 Dubrovnik

Admire the terracotta roofs and ancient ramparts of Croatia's 'Pearl of the Adriatic'. Walk along the city walls, taking in glorious vistas over the azure coastline.

Day 3 Ulcinj

The sands of Velika Plaza are believed to hold potent healing powers - a great excuse to lie back on these Montenegrin shores and relax.

Days 4-5 Tirana

Albania's compact capital is best explored on foot. Turkish and Italian influences are apparent in the architecture - the Et'hem Bey Mosque is a must-see for its intricate frescoes.

Days 6-7 Berat

Thought to be one of the oldest cities in the country, charming Berat is better known to Albanians as the 'City of a Thousand Windows'. With an incredible concentration of historical buildings - including a crumbling castle - there's much to explore.

Days 8-9 Gjirokastra

Step back in time and discover this perfectly preserved Ottoman town. Get a taste of the region's tumultuous past at its magnificent citadel and be sure to visit the 17th century bazaar.

Days 10-11 Saranda

Gateway to the beautiful Albanian Riviera, Saranda is a lively seaside town full of Mediterranean-flavoured cafes and bars. Head out to explore the ruins of Butrint and stop by the Blue Eye Spring.

Days 12-13 Corfu

Sickle-shaped Corfu offers a World Heritage-listed Old Town and miles of scenic coastline. Perhaps stroll along the elegant Liston or delve into the myths of ancient Greece with a trip to the Archaeological Museum.

Days 14-15 Athens

The journey ends in Greece's 3,400-year-old metropolis. Be sure to try Greek souvlaki and to visit the Parthenon for impressive panoramas of the city.
